Tips for setting up your barbecue area

During the planning and design of the project for your barbecue area, it is essential to think of some points that will make all the difference in the construction of this space. And to help you get to know some of these points, we decided to share some tips that you can’t forget while deciding on this project.

Barbecue grill

There is no barbecue area without barbecue. Therefore, this is one of the first items you need to choose to build this space. After all, there are several barbecue models available on the market, each of which requires a different type of structure for its installation.

The traditional masonry barbecue, for example, is a bespoke structure, that is, it requires more money and time. On the other hand, smoke grills can be installed on the counter or can be purchased with their own structure. On the other hand, this model is not very common in Brazil. And it is precisely because of these differences in installation that you need to choose which model you want to use in your project.
